Over the years, I’ve come across all kinds of strange advice about what you should and shouldn’t be eating to get pregnant – and particularly during the two week wait. I’m often asked for dietary advice, and what people really want is a list of super fertility foods which will hugely boost their chances of getting pregnant. There’s certainly no shortage of advice about this but some of it is completely contradictory – so should you drink masses of milk or avoid dairy foods altogether? And there’s no end of conflicting advice about pineapples and which bits you should eat and which you should avoid.
That’s why this article by nutritionist Charlotte Stirling-Reed is so welcome as it is full of sensible practical advice and focuses on the things that actually will make a difference rather than those which probably won’t.
